What is Functional Medicine?
Functional medicine is an evolution of the practice of medicine that better addresses the needs of 21st century healthcare. It addresses the underlying cause of disease using a systems-based approach that allows the patient and practitioner to engage in a therapeutic partnership.
The power of establishing this partnership is that my patients are able to make sustained lifestyle changes and improve their health.
Functional medicine shifts the traditional disease-centered focus of medical care to a more patient-centered approach. It addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms. We take a deep dive into your history and explore the genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that influence long-term health.
The approach is to look “upstream”, where disease begins. Instead of resorting to “quick fix” prescription pharmaceutical therapies that will mask symptoms and disease progression. The goal is to uncover the root cause of your symptoms and ultimate reverse/prevent disease.
We harness the power of food as medicine, lifestyle modifications, and natural supplements to meet you where you are and empower you to achieve your health goals. Your biology IS your biography!
